NETIZEN “BLACKLIST” AIRLINES AS HE WORRIES OF SAFETY STANDARDS

Airasia is on my black list. I believe that it’s an airline with low safety standards and poor training.

Aircrash of Air Asia 8501 was caused by incompetency of captain and poor communication between captain and first officer. Their training is very poor on communication when their flight crew comes from all over the world. One pilot was pulling up and the other pilot is pushing down, which cancelled inputs to the plane, as the plane fall from the sky.

They also have quite a few incidents of runway excursions and burst tyres. These are largely attributed to pilot mistakes and poor cockpit resource management. And you see these categories of incidents most common in low end airlines in Africa and former CIS countries.

All Air Asias are the same as the same technical and management services are delivered across the different Air Asias. They are set up in this way for ring-fencing liabilities and assets that help in aircraft financing arrangements and they get different ICAO codes and treated differently from being the same airlines when they fight for airport slots and routes.

The only LCC I like is Jetstar. Their products are higher quality and they have solid engineering team backed by Qantas. They are always on time too.

My dad is a pilot and we do not fly Air Asia for all the reasons you said above. Especially now after years of limited revenue and high cost cutting it’s more risky than before. I have a work trip to a neighbouring country soon and the cheapest fare was Air Asia, I’m topping up the difference to fly Scoot. You can fly many times and nothing goes wrong. You can fly one time and nothing goes right. I fly multiple times a month for work and I’m super particular. Paying a little more for safety and service (when something doesn’t go right) is always worth it for me
